While I was at the school, I met with an advanced drawing class to talk about how they can do small master copies of these landscape paintings. I was also thrilled to learn that art teacher Kathryn Field has introduced her students to Bargue drawing and cast drawing! This is rare to find in a high school art classroom. It was inspiring to reconnect with the school and see what great work everyone is doing there. Lucky students!
